Warriors G Curry gets vote from dad’s replacement

Dell Curry may not have been able to vote for his son as the

NBA’s rookie of the year, but his replacement did.

Curry, the Charlotte Bobcats TV analyst, had his vote revoked by

the NBA because his son, Stephen of the Golden State Warriors, is

considered a front-runner for the award along with Tyreke Evans of

Sacramento.

The elder Curry said he turned in his ballot Tuesday with his

son as rookie of the year. After the vote was voided, the ballot

was transferred to Bobcats radio play-by-play announcer Scott

Lauer. He said on Wednesday he voted for Curry.

Dell Curry claimed his choice wasn’t simply based on family.

Stephen Curry is averaging 17.2 points, second for rookies Evans’

20.1. Curry leads all rookies with 5.9 assists.
